Materials on Marxism, History and Religion

Torr04 - The notes and writings in this group follow one interpretation of the history of both Communism and Socialism from the latter 14th century to the mid 20th century. Attributing the rise of free thought to the Wycliffe translation of the Bible in the latter 14th century, these records proceed to discuss the Chartist movement and the 2nd Chartist petition in particular. The roots of the first Socialism movement then appear to have been built upon a religious foundation before developing a keen political focus. Torr's book on The Great Depression of 1873 - 1896 explores the impact of the Depression on workers' wages and their Trade Unions, as well as upon society as a whole. Through her notes, Torr explores the beliefs and practices of latter 19th century socialist groups such as: The London Republican Club, International Workers of the World, the National Reform League, and the Fabian Society. The development of Karl Marx's work is then traced through a timeline of events that serves as an introduction to research upon different varieties of Marxism and Socialism. A definition of Democratic Socialism leads the way into a debate on the need for welfare reform in the 20th century.

Notes on Religious and Rationalist Themes.

CP/IND/TORR/02/07 - These notes chronicle one interpretation of the rise of individuals' Bible reading in English and its percieved enabling of free thought in the latter 14th century. They cover the relaxation of the need to depend on others' interpretation of the Bible's meaning, and they cover a beginning of the move towards rationalism, framing it in relation to Adam and Eve's move from dependence after consuming the forbidden fruit. This is followed by an interpretation of how the country moved from rationalism to mechanisation of labour.

Notes by Brian Pearce on Marxism and War 1859 - 1939, marginal notes by Dona Torr.

CP/IND/TORR/02/10 - These marginal notes are of dubious ownership and while they have been attributed to Dona Torr they may not be her work.The principle work featured here is an analysis of different varieties of Marxism and Socialism from the 1890's to the 1930's. The focus is upon arguing that Marxist Marxism reacted to war through analysing historical and contemporary information, in order to calculate whether victory or defeat would most benefit the cause, and acting on the findings.
